In 2020, B-Classic and Vonk 3 selected three musicians to be part of an artistic residency programme at Studio Classic. On Saturday 19 March, Benjamin, Jasmijn and Michiel will present the results of this programme.


Jasmijn Lootens



To play or be played? The score for Eugène Ysaÿe’s cello sonata solo is ready. Like an objet trouvé from 1924. Memories of great virtuosity are deconstructed and distorted into an amorphous and electroacoustic soundscape. When new lines are drawn, will the virtuoso cellist of yesteryear be left behind? Or will a new narrative emerge? The game begins.

Meine Ruh' ist hin
Mein Herz ist schwer
ich finde sie nimmer
und nimmer mehr
(uit Gretchen am Spinnrade, F. Schubert/J. W. von Goethe)

3 tableaux of life and death

1. I could hear spring this morning
2. Ophelia
3. What remains

 Michiel De Naegel aka Joeri Chipsvingers

Strange times call for strange heroes.
And Joeri is definitely strange, if you ask me. Who am I?
Who cares! It’s none of your business!
Just leave your door open a crack on the 19th so Joeri can waltz on in.
